Wireless
Click on the Wireless link on the navigation drop-down menu. You will then see four options: wireless network, wireless MAC filter, WDS link settings, and wireless advanced settings. Each option is described below.

Wireless Network
The Wireless Network page allows you to configure the wireless mode, channel, SSID, and security settings.

Wireless Mode: Depending on the type of wireless clients that are connected to the network, you may select B, G, B/G-mixed or Super-G. If you are not sure about which clients will be accessing the wireless networks, it is recommended that you select B/G-mixed for the best performance. Super-G is a proprietary mode which combines all channels into a single channel to maximize the through-put up to 200%. Please be aware that Super-G works only with other Super-G supported devices. Channel: Select a channel from the drop-down list. The channels available are based on the country’s regulation. When selecting Infrastructure mode, a channel is not required, however, when selecting Adhoc mode, you must select the same channel on all points.

Wireless Security - WEP
Security Mode: Select WEP from the drop-down list if your wireless network uses WEP encryption. WEP is an acronym for Wired Equivalent Privacy, and is a security

protocol that provides the same level of security for wireless networks as for a wired network.

Authentication Type: Select an authentication method. Options available are Open Key, Shared Key or Auto. An open system allows any client to authenticate as long as it conforms to any MAC address filter policies that may have been set. All authentication packets are transmitted without encryption. Shared Key sends an unencrypted challenge text string to any device attempting to communicate with the Access Point. The device requesting authentication encrypts the challenge text and sends it back to the Access Point. If the challenge text is encrypted correctly, the Access Point allows the requesting device to authenticate. It is recommended to select Auto if you are not sure which authentication type is used. Input Type: Select He or ASCII from the drop-down list Key Length: Select a key format from the drop-down list. 64bit-hex keys require 10 characters, where as 128-bit keys require 26 characters. A hex key is defined as a number between 0 through 9 and letter between A through F. Default Key: You may use up to four different keys for four different networks. Select the current key that will be used. Key 1-4: You may enter four different WEP keys. Click on the Apply button to save the changes.
